Created by Freelancers, For Freelancers

Since 2014, The Freelance Conference has worked side-by-side with freelancers across the country, peering in to the world of freelancing as an industry, career and lifestyle.

With freelancing becoming a more accepted business model, we strive to find and solve the roadblocks that are holding freelance business owners back from success. We are reaching out to not only legitimize the industry of freelancing but bring us together as a community to learn from each other to benefit everyone that participates.

The Freelance Conference is an event created by freelancers, for freelancers. It was born in the spirit of those who leave or are desiring to leave a J-O-B with the dream of time, freedom, better income, and the ability to control your own careers and life. The conference combines that shared vision with the reality of what it takes to make the dream of self-employment come true; a set of skills that few of us come equipped with in full.

She has a guiding belief that those working for themselves deserve the same respect as those working for major corporations.
